3D Modeling & Prototyping
Toolbox offers advanced tools for 3D modeling and prototyping that help users and clients fully understand the design and functionality of the product. Digitally previewing products in 3D allows users to identify issues and contain problems in the design stage, before they are built. The powerful 3D modeling tool pallet allows you to build custom products that can be analyzed and converted to a machine-ready Microvellum product.
Drafting & Detailing
Our Toolbox design foundation has been helping 1000’s of design professionals from around the world realize their creations for over two decades. We combine the flexibility of Microvellum’s product catalog intelligence and the continuously evolving Autodesk technology, to deliver a solution that is unmatched in our industry.
2D / 3D Drawing Sync
Toolbox provides an automated solution to keep your product drawings and section views in updated. Whenever edits are made to the 3D source, all 2D sections, elevations and plan views are kept in sync – saving you valuable time and reducing errors.
Section views are a critical element of any 2D submittal drawing and can also be a vital aid for assembly. Section views are created quickly and easily by selecting the product to section and choosing the cutting plane for the section.
Powered by Autodesk, Toolbox provides visually stunning renderings. The easy-to-use rendering controls allow your team to produce life-like images of entire rooms or individual products for presentations or prototyping.
Take advantage of multiple visual styles to enhance your presentation, design or engineering experience: 2D wire frame, 3D wire frame, conceptual, hidden view, realistic shaded, shaded with edges, x-ray, and sketchy.
3D Design Elements
Accessorize your designs by adding room components from the built-in catalog such as small appliances, lighting fixtures, tables, chairs, plants, cookware and other household items. Import models from 3D warehouses like Google SketchUp, Autodesk Seek, and other popular sources.
Manufacturing Your Projects
Design + Manufacturing + ERP
Not only is Toolbox a platform for creating amazing designs and industry standard drawings, its also is a tool for manufacturing. Inside each product, we store the information needed to calculate how much the products cost, the materials needed and even pass all part information and machining requirements through to the Microvellum manufacturing engine. This allows you to take projects from the virtual world through to the real world, generating all the manufacturing information to build the project.
If you want to start tracking your projects – the individual activities, your employee time, the status of projects, the shipping of your products or even the purchasing of materials – Microvellum’s ERP tools connect seamlessly to our single database solution.
